Gold has been synonymous with wealth and beauty for centuries. And now it is not just a precious metal that we wear as jewelry or have as an accessory on display. Now gold is taking over the skincare industry. You can now pamper your skin with gold!
Have you seen all of these gold masks being sold? They are all the rave and everyone seems to be loving them! So there’s gotta be something to the benefits of gold on the skin. And this is why I am your guinea pig Read more…
I’m super stoked because the weather finally got the memo that it is Fall! Although it was in the 80’s two days ago and in the low 40’s today, so it has been a bit of a drastic change. But alas, sweater weather is here!
I’ve been itching to start wearing sweaters and this one is no exception. How freaking fun is Read more…
Its Friday!!! (breathing a sigh of relief) I like weekdays, I really do! And for the most part I don’t mind Mondays, except for the waking up extra early. But boy, I’ve never been so happy for it to be the weekend already. One of my best friends is getting married this weekend and I’m so stoked! Plus, I get to relax and spend some time with all of my boys this weekend.
I also get to have a day date with my hubby today! Now that the Read more…
I am so excited to announce that I have partnered with Banana Republic to bring you the ultimate Fall must-haves!!! I have always loved Banana Republic’s simple and chic styles with a twist. Any time I walk into one of their stores, I know I’m bound to find a few items that I will love and for this season’s collections, they did not disappoint. In fact, they have exceeded my expectations!
Last month I was lucky enough to attend the presentation of Banana Republic X Olivia Palermo in New York City during NYFW. I even got to take a picture with Olivia herself! The collection was nothing short than fantastic and I so wish I could just have one of everything. But, I’m not here to talk about that specific collection, instead I’m here to show you how Banana Republic’s Fall collection can elevate your wardrobe.
First, lets talk about this ribbed sweater dress. It’s not easy to find a really good sweater dress, #amiright? They either have no shape, which can make us look frumpy or are too tight, and because its pie season, that might just not work. This A-line sweater dress is forgiving because of its shape and the ribs are made to go in two different directions to flatter every body type. I also really like the button details on the right side that gives it a bit of a nautical feel. The color is technically navy but it does have a hint of green, making it a more jeweled tone. It also comes in a jeweled toned fuchsia (named plum on the site).
I styled the sweater dress with these OTK boots that are not just stylish but they don’t slide down! They are actually higher on the thigh but I folded them down a bit because of the length of the dress. You can also style the dress with booties or flats.
Another piece I selected is this fabulous animal bomber jacket. The twist? The poet sleeves, or puff sleeves if you will. It has a zipper and snap buttons with high quality craftsmanship. I also love the stand collar which is shorter than a regular folded one, so it the wool blend fabric won’t make my neck itch. This jacket is very versatile and a neutral piece that goes with almost anything. Besides styling it with the sweater dress, I also styled it with these boyfriend jeans, one of the t-shirts from my tee collection and black suede pumps.
Banana Republic’s new Fall items are sure to elevate your wardrobe this season. I have selected some other favorite items and posted them at the end of this post. Just click on each image to shop!
I hope I’ve inspired your Fall wardrobe! Thanks for stopping by!

I recently discovered Measurable Difference, a line of makeup and skincare based out of L.A. that won’t break the bank. Going through their website this lip color set immediately caught my attention. With 36 different matte lip creams, you are bound to have a color to fit your day’s mood. Now yes, some colors in this set are a bit out there, but hey! Halloween is coming up. There’s black, grey and green if that inspires you for this year’s costume. OR if you just happen to love those colors on your lips, by all means, the colors are included.
What I love about these lip colors is that they are highly Read more…
It may be officially Fall, but here in Charlotte it is hot hot hot. I actually ordered this cami dress with a seamless bird pattern to wear in Paris, but it arrived after we got back (don’t you hate that?). I’ve still been able to get good use out of it since the weather hasn’t gotten the memo that it is Fall yet.
So, while we wait for some sweater weather, I wanted to share some tips on how to wear this dress now and how to transition it into Fall.
Happy first day of Fall! I am so excited to have partnered with ModCloth again to show you how I’m getting ready for Fall and bring you the cutest styles!
Guys, I am crushing so hard on velvet for this season, its not even funny. As one of the biggest trends for Fall 2017, velvet is going to be taking over your Instagram feed as well as my own closet. I’ve bought tops, shoes, and a blazer in velvet, and when I saw these wide legged pants, I knew I had to have them.
If you don’t know by now, I am a huge fan of wide legged pants. These Guiding Glow Wide Leg Velvet pants are in my favorite color, kind of like a celadon green, so its a win win. Now, I know I know, they are Read more…
